Hotel Nation Montmartre
Ranked #1,650 of 1,803 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 26 November 2013

gloomy place, dirty mattress, yellowish sheets, and the double room advertised turned out to be with bathroom and toilets to share, 2 floors below. No heating on the first night with negative temperature outside. No place to go for sure and price is higher than those cheap chains (but clean and modern) you have 2 metro stops away... Bad choice, plus refurbishing works in the lowest floors, meaning incredible noise from 8am till 8pm even on week-ends !

Room Tip: they are refurbishing the place but it seems to be as tacky and low service as it's been for yea...

I stayed there for a few days in mid-November and was dreading it having read the reviews but was pleasantly surprised. There is no lift, so you need to be fit to climb the stairs but the rooms were more than adequate, bed, storage, sink, television with a power point, more than adequate. The location is perfect, two minutes walk from the metro, buses right outside, a Carrefour supermarket a minute away open 6 days a week and close to the highlights of Montmartre. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was no noise at night (although building work was going on in the daytime, but who stays in during the day?) so it was a good budget option for a Paris stay. There were problems, the steps were a bit much at times, there were only 2 showers (although excellent showers) in the whole place and the toilets were in the stairwell and a little too well ventilated (i.e. freezing). But, these small grievances aside, it is a good place to stay if you are looking to see Paris on a budget and not afraid to rough it a bit. If you are youngish fit and poor, a good base.

Room Tip: Try to get the first floor, less steps and a better room I hear.

We'd heard some terrible reviews about this place but we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It seems to have been refurbished pretty recently so the lobby looked great and the rooms were freshly painted. The staff were very helpful and allowed us to store our bags there after we'd checked out.
The room is very basic (so basic there were no plug sockets in the room) but good just for sleeping there. There was a sink and a bidet in the room but the toilet in on the stairs. There's no sink in the toilet but it's not a major hassle. The showers were clean and large but there wasn't many of them.
There are plenty of sockets in the lobby along with vending machines and tables and chairs so you can sit there to charge stuff.
The location is great as it's right next to a tube station and a short walk from the Sacre Coeur and Montmartre (if that's your kind of thing). The street immediately outside the door did seem a bit dodgy, frequented by the kind of men who like making women feel uncomfortable but you can take the slightly longer and busier way round if you feel uncomfortable. Either that or the keys between your fist trick.
For Paris, it was good value for money. I wouldn't pay that much for the same thing further east though.

Room Tip: Bring hand sanitiser for the lack of sink in the toilet and be aware that there is no lift and a pos...

If you need to save your money and are not too fancy, this is a good hotel to stay in. The room was clean and had a sink and a bide, the toilet is located on every floor by the staircase, it was also always clean and had a stash of toilet paper. The bathroom is located on the 3 rd floor, it has 2 separate showers, also always clean and comfortable with no waiting in lines.
2 minutes walk to the metro station, 2 lines running to the centre, fast food Quick and McDonald's are nearby so you're good for dinner/ breakfast.
Downsides: just one electrical socket in the room so if you need to charge more than one cell or laptop, it's tricky. Also, the neighbourhood is pretty loud and feels a bit unsafe at night, and although nothing happened to us, being a girl, I wouldn't hang out there on my own. The hotel locks down at 22.30 but you can buzz and there is always someone to let you in.

I am halfway through my stay at this hotel, and I would reccomend for anyone visiting Paris who wants a cheap hotel close to the metro. It is no more than a minute walk from the metro station, with a fast food restaurant Quick right outside, and a Carrefour close by nr. Gare du Nord. So for anyone visiting Paris and needing a cheap place to stay this is ideal. My room was clean, the bed extremely comfy ( a proper mattress); the toilets clean with a constant supply of toilet paper; and the showers were clean and spacious, I would recommend showering during the day as they are always free then. The hotel is decorated nicely similar to a travel lodge. The internet worked on my phone at all hours but on my laptop only between about 11am and 8pm, no idea why dont know if this was just my computer. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the person at reception when I arrived, carried my very heavy suitcase up two flights of stairs for which I was very grateful. Overall, aslong as you don't have super high expectations and are willing to take its few faults with a pinch of salt, this hotel is fine.

Room Tip: Room onto the courtyard is slightly quieter less road noise.

We knew what we were getting ourselves into when we booked this "hotel." We waited too long to book a hotel, so it was either pay a reasonable price for this one or pay at least twice as much for a decent hotel. We decided to go for this one and spend the money we would have spent on food and seeing the sights, since we felt that was more important. All in all, this place suited our needs, although it was not glamorous. The worst part by far was the staff worker who did the night shift. He was rude, hostile, and completely unhelpful. We got in late and tried to get help to get a working wireless password, and after 4 trips up and down the 5 flights of stairs, he quickly lost patience with us for some reason and started yelling at us, asking us why we were even there!!! He was an awful person! If it weren't for him, I'd give this place at least 3 stars, and possibly 4 since it's a cheap hotel and you get what you pay for. That guy was so unpleasant that he really soured our experience there enough to knock my review down 1-2 stars. Avoid any encounters with that night shift guy and your stay will be much better!

Feces on the wall and intimidation from the staff. Do not stay here. This is not a hotel and should not be recommended by any travel company. We left after twenty minutes and were refused a refund. The area surrounding the hotel is unsafe (particularly for women). There were no positives that I found for this unclean hovel.
